The Tailgating Peanut Butter Dessert Collection

When the right game plan is set in motion early, football socials are more enjoyable. The 2019 Buttermilk Lipstick Playbook Of Game Day Entertaining & Tailgating Recipes offers valuable tips & pointers so you can plan for the next several months of festivities. When it comes down to the menu, be certain to toast the season with a round of Cilantro-Lime Bloody Mary Shooters accompanied with Classic Spinach Dip & Championship Caviar. If something sweet is desired, adorable peanut butter treats are a crowd pleaser & making them into bite-sized morsels couldn’t be any easier. Buckeye Footballs get an update with a few quick shaping & piping bag moves that result in little football confections while the cookies offer a gridiron pattern over the surface for undeniable charm. Use them when hosting football parties. I’ll be sharing the secrets to making these essential sweets plus pointers for packaging & serving them this morning on WBRC Good Day Alabama so I do hope you’ll join me.

makes 2 1/2 dozen

The Basic Fundamentals

Use an offset spatula to gently lift each football off of the wire rack & transfer to a serving platter. Take your time during this process for the neatest, fingerprint-free candies.

2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup melted butter
1 Tbsp buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate morsels
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
11 Tbsp powdered sugar
1 tsp meringue powder 
1 Tbsp hot water

Stir together 2 cups powdered sugar, the peanut butter, the butter, the buttermilk & the vanilla in a medium bowl. Shape small amounts of the mixture using two spoons, forming quenelles. Place on a wire rack over a half sheet pan. Let stand at room temperature 20 minutes.

Microwave the chocolate morsels & the heavy cream in a small glass bowl 30 to 40 seconds. Whisk until smooth. Spoon a bit of the glaze over each peanut butter quenelle allowing it to spill over the sides. Tap the rack several times on the countertop to remove the air bubbles or pierce them with the tip of a wooden pick. Gather the chocolate that forms on the pan & place in a glass bowl. Gently reheat in the microwave to pouring consistency. Repeat the process to cover all of the candy. Let stand 2 hours at room temperature or until set.

Combine the 11 tablespoons powdered sugar, the meringue powder & the hot water in a bowl. Place in a piping bag fit with a 00 tip. Pipe lines over the surface of each candy to resemble football laces. Let stand 30 minutes or until set. Chill up to two days before serving. 

 The Extra Point

Accompany the peanut butter treats with a collection of irresistible bite-sized cookies.

RKG MonogramMiniature Classic Peanut Butter Cookies
makes 12 dozen

The Basic Fundamentals

Butter may be left on the countertop to soften for approximately 20 minutes. Use your index finger to press the surface. If an indentation remains, it’s ready to use in a variety of recipe applications. 

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp kosher salt

Cream the butter & the sugar on Medium speed using an electric stand mixer until light & fluffy. Add the egg & the vanilla. Blend just until combined. Add the peanut butter & mix just until blended. Do not over mix the peanut butter as it may separate. Whisk together the flour, the baking soda & the salt in a small bowl. Add to the butter mixture & blend on Low speed just until combined. Transfer the dough to a bowl & cover with plastic wrap. Chill 4 hours. Divide the dough into 4 equal pieces & roll each portion into a 10-inch log that measures approximately 1-inch in diameter. Roll in plastic & chill 4 to 24 hours.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Slice each log into 1/4-inch thick pieces using a paring knife. Place 1-inch apart on parchment paper-lined half sheet pans. The dough will spread during baking. Imprint a cross hatch pattern over the dough surface using the tines of a fork. Bake 9 to 10 minutes. Cool completely. 

The Extra Point

Prepare the cookies up to a day in advance. For ultra indulgent morsels, sandwich two together with American buttercream.

Run The Option

The recipe makes 3 1/2 dozen traditionally-sized cookies. Roll the chilled dough into 1-inch balls & coat in the cinnamon sugar, place on parchment paper-lined pans & flatten with the bottom of a drinking glass to 2-inches. Bake an additional 2 minutes per batch.

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, divided
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/3 cup granulated sugar

Cream the butter & the sugar on Medium speed using an electric stand mixer until light & fluffy. Add the egg & the vanilla. Blend just until combined. Add the peanut butter & mix just until blended. Do not over mix the peanut butter as it may separate. Whisk together the flour, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, the baking soda & the salt in a small bowl. Add to the butter mixture & blend on Low speed just until combined. Transfer the dough to a bowl & cover with plastic wrap. Chill 4 hours. Divide the dough into 4 equal pieces & roll each portion into a 10-inch log that measures approximately 1-inch in diameter. Roll in plastic & chill 4 to 24 hours.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Slice each log into 1/4-inch thick pieces using a paring knife. Place 1-inch apart on parchment paper-lined half sheet pans. The dough will spread during baking. Combine the granulated sugar & the remaining cinnamon. Sprinkle the mixture over the cookie dough portions. Bake 9 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle with additional cinnamon sugar. Cool completely. 

The Extra Point

Prepare the cookies up to a day in advance. The dough is extremely soft. Place the logs in the freezer briefly during the cutting process to reform again.
